Why did I choose the name Blue Skies for this blog? Many of you know of my interest in meteorology, so a topic dealing with the sky and clouds would seem appropriate. But this blog is about more than just the weather. Blue Skies embodies a positive and renewed passion for life.
It can be easy to lose sight of the blue skies above us, especially when dark clouds descend upon us. The many challenges of life can sometimes obscure our outlook. We lose focus on the importance of life and on the important things in our lives. We fail to recognize that the blue skies are always with us and within us.
Our faith, family and friends will provide us the strength to weather any storm. At times it may be difficult to fathom that every cloud has a silver lining, and that one day the brilliant blue skies will make a return into our lives. But with prayer and a little patience, the clouds will pass and the sun will rise on a new day.
I think that life is too short to believe otherwise.
